This is a wonderful place to sit and enjoy the view of the water and the ships and sailboats that dock there. The beach is also very nice.

Great place to spend the day and walk around also. Restaurants are near by and sailing tours also. Had to cut the walk short because of the inbound storm but looking forward to returning in a regular basis.

WE had such a great meal at this restaurant. Gorgeous view of the York river, where Cornwallis sought to escape across to Glouster. We both got the Cafe Cobb salad. The plates were huge and we probably should have shared. The crab was overflowing and...More

We are planning to visit the Williamsburg area in early June. We are beach lovers at heart. Is the Yorktown River Walk beach the type where people set out their blanket, chairs & umbrella to spend the day basking in the sun?
